The couple married in the recently completed Greenbrier Chapel, nestled on the grounds of The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV. The chapel's spectacular stained-glass windows were designed by Carleton Varney, the legendary long-time interior decorator of The Greenbrier. Bob Cochran was the on-site project manager.
The classic white wood and stone chapel, which can seat up to 500 guests, features a spectacular copper roof and steeple and colorful stained glass windows, which evoke the alluring landscapes of West Virginia. The rustic elegant interior of The Greenbrier Chapel features exposed wood-beam ceilings adorned with 10 custom chandeliers, checkerboard stained-wood floors, a wrap-around balcony and carved wood pews.
The couple exited The Greenbrier Chapel as three antique church bells from 1924 rang in celebration. A reception, featuring numerous heartfelt toasts, was highlighted by surprise singer Lionel Richie's stirring performance in a magnificent tent in Founders Park, located in the heart of The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier.
